Surādhīśa (सुराधीश) refers to the “lords of Devas”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.40.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] after going beyond Alakā, the capital of the king of Yakṣas and the Saugandhika park, they saw the fig-tree of Śiva. [...] Beneath that vaṭa of yogic potentialities, Viṣṇu and other Devas saw Śiva seated. [...] Viṣṇu and the Devas performed obeisance and spoke to Śiva who was revered by the lords of Devas (i.e., Surādhīśa), Siddhas, Gaṇas and the sages”.
